“Mrs Mileti, guess who the luckiest boy on the planet is.” Asked Calvin as we neared his stop.
” I have no idea, Calvin. Why don’t you tell me who the luckiest boy on the planet is.” I responded.
“This boy, that’s who.” Stated Calvin, indicating himself, with his thumbs aimed toward himself, and a wide toothy grin adorning his face.
“And what is it that makes you the luckiest boy on the planet, Calvin? I asked.
“I don’t have any homework this weekend” Replied Calvin, enthusiastically.
There were three additional students on board, when Calvin made his jubilant proclamation, after which, each child in succession, claimed they also had no homework.
I inwardly cringed as each child touted the same claim, but was relieved when this did not alter Calvin’s disposition or excitement.
Sometimes it’s the little things in life, that mean so much!
I hope you had a, no homework, kind of weekend too. 🙂
